Re: Link to Clip Markings

On another forum ( http://forum.violity.com/viewtopic.php?p=7328666&highlight=#7328666 ) I came across post...

Chinese Mannlichers

The site, http://chinesefirearms.com/ has a good bit of info about Chinese firearms in general, but thanks to a guy named Gindenburg on another forum I found out that they had purchased Model 1888 Mannlichers from Austria, and made their own ammunition for them.

Re: Eddystone fixer upper
